Welcome back to Tea With Me and Friends - we hope you're well today.
Recently we were introduced to Treena from TweeTea - a collection of children's fruit tea. Treena came up with the idea of developing teas for children with her friend....over a cup of tea! They realised that when they met up for a good old fashioned catch up over a cuppa and a slice of cake that their children were quite limited in what they could enjoy, and a lot of the options were full of sugar. Treena wanted a healthier option for children which was tasty and also easy to prepare.
Twee Teas source all of their ingredients from reputable suppliers. They hand blend the fruit teas and sell them in pyramid teabags. The teas can be enjoyed both hot or cold, they are all natural with no added sugar or additives and contain no tannin or caffeine.
Currently there are three teas in the range - mixed berry, strawberry and vanilla and orange and pineapple. Treena kindly sent us the mixed berry and the strawberry and vanilla varieties to try......
|Tweetea - mixed berry and strawberry and vanilla|
The packaging is very cute - each has a sweet tea bird! Meet Berry-Boubou and Sunny Swift!
The mixed berry tea contains Blackberry, Elderberries, Grapes and Hibiscus, while the Strawberry and Vanilla contains Strawberry, Vanilla, Rosehips and Hibiscus. Each should be brewed for 3-5 minutes, developing really pretty colours in your cup.....
The strawberry tea has a really sweet aroma once brewed, it reminded me of the strawberry and cream sweets I enjoyed when I was little. However, the taste was much more mellow as the hibiscus came through. As the tea cooled it was interesting to see the vanilla flavour develop again - making the hot and cold versions of the drink quite different!
The berry tea is very subtle in both aroma and flavour, its not overly sweet but its sweeter than the strawberry tea.
The teas are available in packs of 15 pyramids, which retail at just under £4 each. For more information pop by the Tweetea website.
We'd like to thank Treena for sending us these teas to try!
Thank you for popping by today,
Rachel and Lorna
